first presidential debate, romney bested obama in front of 66 million people and began to benefit from mement tum. and then hurricane sandy hit. on tuesday romney will try to unseat an incumbent president, he's trying to knock a party out of power after just one term. while the president is targeting each part of his coalition with a handful of small arguments, romney is counting on winning the large one. >> he made a lot of promises, but those promises he couldn't keep. and the difference between us, he made promises he couldn't keep, i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. >> so where does that leave us? the two campaigns believe passionately in two different realities. the president obama campaign believes the countries demographics have changed the etor roert in your favor. the romney campaign believes you have the momentum to swing over. it's possible we are headed for a 50/50 split. it all comes down to nine states or seven or five? whatever the result. polarization is hardening. the house has changed hands three times in the last two decades

week of the election, obama is spenning about $2 million in pennsylvania and romney and his allies are spending $11 million. pennsylvania is going to go for romney. he is 3 points ahead now. those 20 electoral votes will put him over the top, long before we call the 18 in ohio. >> greta: all right. let me ask but ohio. all the polls are neck and neck so they are tied. so tell me why those polls are not to be public believed and why listening to you, we should think you are right in calling ohio? >> because the polls that are out there, for example, the times/cbs poll interviewed 38% democrats and 29% of their sample are republicans. about an 8 or 9-point democratic advantage. now in 2008, there was an 8-point democratic advantage, that's a good sample for the '08 election. but in '04, there was a 4-point republican advantage. if you take '04, '06, '08 and 'steb, you get equal democrats and republicans in the sample. so if you believe there will be a huge turnout among minorities and young people, that the enthusiasm is undiminnished and they will be there like in 'where are 8, believe

millions of dollars, negative ads against president obama but very little of it defining mitt romney positively when they knew they were going to come after him on bane. gwen: the republican primary that very thing happened. mitt romney's profile is just the wrong profile for the state of ohio. but that said, in the southeast quadrant where your appalachia, west virginia, the coal country, they have done a very aggressive job as depicting the president as having a war on coal. if they can get out the vote quite heavily and get out the vote in southeast ohio, it will make a difference. gwen: how about the independents? we were supposed to be watching for the independents and where they were going to go. do we have any sense of that. >> mitt romney has been doing better among independents in many of the polls. the question is what is the nature of the independents an how has the campaign itself caused people to identify themselves with one part or the other and not as independents anymore. so the independents that we're talking about in 2012 may not be the independents that we were tal
